Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner is embarking on a trippy night journey, and he's invited all of us to come along.
The early-morning booty call has never seemed so nightmarish as it does in the clip for the band's new single "Why'd You Only Call Me When You're High?", which sees a drunken Turner becoming so desperate for "relations" with a girl named Stephanie that he actually begins having hallucinations in a pool hall and later on the street - including several that involve Stephanie fornicating with pizza-shop employees and cab drivers. Time for therapy, maybe?
In any case, with lyrics like, "Now it's three in the morning/And I'm trying to change your mind/Left you multiple missed calls/And to my message you reply/Why'd you only call me when you're high?", the mid-tempo tune has gotten pretty much the video you'd expect, and you can check out the full on-the-nose clip above.
